Netsh commands offer an alternative to configuring network technologies using the Windows interface. You can run netsh commands in batch files and scripts, and you can run them from the netsh prompt by manually typing commands. You can use netsh commands to configure both local and remote computers.

Crazy Screenshots – Geek Heaven

Today I have been to geek heaven… and it’s full of stars!!

Where exactly is geek heaven? Here:

  • Playing Pac Man
  • In a Safari web browser
  • Which is on the www.google.com home page
  • Running on a Mac
  • Which is a virtual machine
  • Running on VMware
  • Running inside Windows 7 64-bit

Folks, Geekdom does NOT get any better than this:

Playing PacMan on the Google.com home page in Safari on a Mac in a virtual machine on Windows 7.
